We had a rice with fish and shellfish, it had no flavor at all. Maybe they didn't know how to cook the rice, because there was a lot of fish and shellfish, and cooking all together with the rice is almost impossible to make it...so bad, as it was billed in water. It's was the worst rice I have ever hadMore

What a wonderful place - we ate the most gorgeous, fresh and well cooked seafood with such a lot of options and unusual things to try. And all served with humour and friendliness. Started with a hot roll and garlic Mayo then the most incredible...platter, clams x 3, prawns x 2 (the tigers are superb), lobster, crab and the king of the lot - percebes, which I’ve never had but were delicious. It was so good I went back alone three days later and had it again! Not the cheapest but if you get the platter I think it’s good value - 90euros for two people, and it’s more than enough. Lovely lovely place. Nice wine. A gem xMore

Great seafood, very fresh and perfectly cooked. Great and friendly service. Definitely one of the best restaurants we have visited in Portugal. If you like crab and lobster, definitely try :-)!

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel and it didn’t disappoint. The service is friendly and quick. We had amazing fish - especially the fish cataplana. We even asked for the shellfish to be taken out because of an allergy and they were...very attentive about that. We came back a second time during our week in Algarve.More

A very typical Portuguese restaurant. Food is well prepared. Staff is incredibly efficient. I don’t know how, but looks like staff are always looking to your table. They provide everything almost immediately.

We ate in this Restauraunt tonight. After all the bill boards and advertising we thought that we were in for a treat ! What a disappointment ! We ordered prawns fried in garlic as a share starter and the fish cataplana for shared mains with...a bottle of house red The prawns were over cooked with little or no garlic butter or oil. Not acceptable even for a roadside cafe! The cataplana had two good very large prawns but the rest of the fish was a very cheap and not so tasty heavy bones white fish . The sauce however was tasty but we were expecting a very tasty flavoursome well presented meal! Wow were we so disappointed. Give it a miss unless they upgrade the whole shop!More

Recommended by our host, we dined as a family group of 12 so definitely needed to reserve - The fact that even with the tourism restrictions, this restaurant was full (with mainly Portuguese) speaks volumes to the quality. Great service - helpful and friendly Great...food - wow!! fresh and great quality - highlights were the medium grilled prawns, grilled fish platter and fish rice. Well recommended!More

The food was delicious, fresh locally sourced and homemade. Just the "wait to eat" buns they serve were to die for. We ordered more for takeout andactually got them for free?! Seafood cooked perfectly, sweet presentation, good portions. The staff were all so kind and...fast. Outdoor and indoor seating available, overlooking cute town. We were lucky enough tosit through a parade in its streets. Wonderful atmosphere 10/10 didnt disappoint on a single thing.More
